Marie Capesius structures and maps her research by looking at history, archives and concrete information about a specific place or person. She draws inspiration from given histories, from what is supposedly left over from another time, in order to transpose history into our present time and to raise questions about the way we live, think and act in relation to a given environment.
Jack Hilton's work revolves around fragments of literature, myth and history. He uses a variety of representations in his paintings, ranging from Japanese folk figures to mythical animals to form strange and confusing narratives. Often a historical episode is presented as a myth of biblical drama. In the process, Jack Hilton seeks to give a new emotional resonance or comic dimension to these scenes.
Julien Hübsch is mainly inspired by urban spaces, such as building sites or abandoned places where traces left by man can still be seen. In order to create these astonishing installations, he recovers construction material from these different places and thus creates a plastic universe in perpetual construction, always adapted to the space where the sculpture is installed. The final work thus becomes a witness and representative of the artistic process.
His work often focuses on moments that explore real and constructed spaces, which are created by combining industrial objects as compositional elements and other figurative elements. The partially figurative and sometimes cropped images are simplified through a process of layering and the use of many different materials and painting methods such as gouache, acrylic, watercolour, oil paint and screen printing.
